Food/Cooking is an Item Group.

See Cooking system for more details.

Food is an essential part of 7 Days to die. Consuming food will add to up your Fullness, whilst consuming a drink will add to your Hydration. Some consumables will add tot both. Fullness and Hydration will deplete over time. Physical activities such as mining will deplete Fullness faster and hotter biomes will increase the rate hydration depletes.


Consuming food and drink does not instantly fill up fullness/Hydration. The amount provided by the food and drink will display in the bottom left corner and is slowly added to the player. The consumed items stack, for example eating a Grilled Meat will add 10. A second one will add another 10 to the amount and so on.


It is possible to consume more than your max value ( 100 at the beginging and +1 for every level of the player). Doing so will keep your food/water level full for longer.


Some items will give you a buff on top of the Fullness/Hydration, see tables below.


Many of the recipes are unlocked by the perk Master Chef. However most can also be unlocked by reading the relevant recipe(Schematic) book. There are exceptions such as Blackstrap Coffee which requires The Art of Mining Vol 4 skill book.
